Kings Forest Stroll: Tea, Trees and Trails

As spring starts to arrive, it is a perfect time to shake off the cobwebs and venture out for some fresh air and nature.

On this walk, you will join experienced foraging and wild craft enthusiast Jon Tyler (from Wild for Woods) for a relaxed guided stroll in the beautiful Kings Forest.

In the tranquillity of the forest surroundings, you will join a friendly group to stroll and explore. Kings Forest is home to fallow deer, as well as having a prolific population of Brecks wildflowers and butterflies. As you explore, you will have the chance to spot nature, try some simple mini wild crafts, and sample some natural foraged tea.

During the walk, there will be opportunity to pause for a picnic lunch, and so please bring a packed lunch with you if you would like one.

Kings Forest is managed by Forestry England, who have kindly granted BFER permission to host this event.
